This morning I went to the post office to pick up my package from Jen at The RA Vegan. We were paired up through Lindsay's post. I had a lot of fun shopping for Jen, as she and her kids eat primarily gluten-free. Here is her post on the swap! I found a lot of neat products while browsing the aisles for her, and she sent me a lot of new vegan products as well!
These dried fruit packs, and a bag of Danielle's coconut chips (!) We know how much I love dried fruit. And the cat apparently likes snuffing at them too.
Some vegan dessert-y type things:
I am stoked about the Panda's licorice. Some people don't like the taste, but I love it.
On the more savory end of the spectrum:
Polenta means I don't have to put much effort into dinner! The fancy salt is also something I've been eying. I look forward to seeing what it adds to a dish.
And this sweet little picture frame:
When I was young, I had a bunch of the Guatemalan worry dolls that line the edge. You are supposed to whisper a worry to the doll and put it under your pillow, and while you sleep it takes away your worries. This frame is a really nice reminder of that and, I hope, a good talisman.
Thank you so much, Jen! It's a nicely put together box full of new foodstuffs and old memories.
Anyway, I wanted to get this post up so I can dig into the goodies but I will be back later with another recipe.
